Not since 2001 has Les Misérables been staged in Dunedin on the scale of this brand new, re-imagined production!
Lead by the award-winning creative team that brought us Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and this year’s blockbuster – Wicked, Les Misérables is set to hit the stage in May 2020 at the beautiful Regent Theatre Dunedin.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of adversity, broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. This epic and uplifting story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history.
Featuring one of the greatest scores of all time played live by a 16 piece orchestra, this brand new production features all the beloved songs including I Dreamed A Dream, On My Own, Stars, Bring Him Home, One Day More, Do You Hear the People Sing and many more!
It has been seen in 44 countries and translated into 22 languages around the globe. Les Misérables is still the world’s most popular musical, breaking box office records everywhere it plays.
The 2015 film adaptation of Les Misérables introduced the musical to a new generation of audiences who will now be able to see the stage production live, here in Dunedin.
